But Tor the first time this year girls are in charge of "equestrian their boss thinks it has never been done better. Anne 20, and Ger- aldine Feet, 19, first-year stu- dents at the University of Vic'.o- ria, thought up the imposing job description when filling in their' 1971 census terms. The girls said they had a diffi- cult time convincing friends they were going to be sweeping and shovelling in the wake of clip-clopping polluters. "I guess they thought we wouldn't stoop so low to earn an honest said Geraldine. Both girls like their outdoor I job and paiticularly relish the I reactions they inspire among tourists. "Some just and stare as if they couldn't believe it. while others nearly die Anne said. Art Knapp, who manages the Tally-Ho tours, says the com- pany hasn't received a single complaint from the public Ihis year because the girls are "the hcst cleanup crew I've ever had." Patrolling the route in Volk- s w a g e n s which have large wooden boxes mounted on the back bumper, Anne and Geral- dine are constantly on the look- out for the tell-tale mounds. Anne admits she has devel- oped such a keen eye in this respect thai "even when I'm out on a date I can't help watching the road." Women's liberation old hat for her EARN I A, Out. (CP) Women's liberation is old hat for Alice Gordon One of the last woman labor- ers working for the Canadian National Railways, she's been holding her own and better working alongside men in Sar- nia yard crews since the Second World War. Mrs. Gordon is retiring in Au- gust because of company policy, not because she wants to. "I'm healthy and strong as ever and finds the job hard at first but after a while it becomes easier. If a person enjoys the work they can work with a smile on their face." Mrs. Gordon says there were many times when she only man- aged to do her work on a "wing and a prayer WOULDN'T GIVE L'P "I was shovelling coal one lime in the middle of a bad snowstorm and there were these old men in the train station if I had my way I'd just keep! round house waiting for me to right on working." Mrs. Gordon admits the work is hard but insists that a person "becomes used to il" after a while. She said the hardest parl of the job is lifting heavy mate- rial coupling equipment and train <-ar springs which weigh about 80 pounds. "A person, man or woman, love is... keeping bis din- ner-warm- ii'beu he's going to be late. give up and call it quils. "By Ihe time I was through shovelling I was black from head to foot and almosl on my hands and knees bul I was bound I would finish the job or quit before I'd let those old io- gies see me give up." Mrs. Gordon was born in Scot- land and trained there as a nurse. When she came to Can- ada in the late '20s she prac- ticed private nursing but found she wasn't making enough money to raise her son pro- perly. She went lo work lor the railway in 1914.

The ticket read as follows: "This is not an official park- ing ticket. Unfortunately J am only a private citizen and hrive no authority to tag improperly parked vehicles. I did want you to know however, lhat anyone who is such a -lousy driver that he can't park any better than you should have his license revoked.

Fred has had two serious hcarl attacks and one of Iliesc days I might be forced to do everything myself and I won't know how to do anything because he nevsr lets me make any decisions. I need your help, Ann. Nora DEAR NORA: There are two kinds of husbands those who gel married because they want to walch over n and (hose who get married because Ihey want a woman lo walch over them. There are lets of women who would gladly change places wilh you. Reading between Ihe lines, however. I suspect you are more helpless than you need be. A wife doesn't have lo produce her husband's signature to a driver's license. does she need his permission lo learn from an insurance agent the Ihings she should know in Ihe event that she is suddenly widowed. If you would assume more responsibility your husband would not treat you like an idiot.
